Francis Ford Coppola discovered Blancaneaux Lodge in 1981 while searching for a jungle hideaway in the Maya mountains of Pine Ridge. When he came upon the Lodge, it was abandoned. He jumped into the falls of Privassion Creek and thought it was a wonderful place to write. For more than a decade Blancaneaux was used as a family retreat before Francis opened his tropical paradise to the public in 1993 Blancaneaux Lodge is a 20-room luxury resort. Privassion Creek flows through the property with tumbling waterfalls that create refreshing swimming holes. Blancaneaux Lodge offers modern comforts in an entirely self-sustained jungle sanctuary. Its remote 2 mountain setting makes it a perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
We absolutely love this property, we have nothing but great things to say about it! This is perfect for those who want to get off the beaten track and immerse themselves into the Belizean jungle. It’s like staying in your own luxurious jungle home with full service! Combine a totally private experience with adventurous tours, or relax at the property. The manager and concierge are there to cater to your every need. All staff are trained to fully respect privacy. The pool and hot tub are perched 1,000 foot above a gently flowing stream, giving you the feeling that you are floating in the trees! If your budget will allow, this is a must in Belize. We think it is perfect! Combined with the sister resort, Gladden Private Island it is the ideal surf and turf combo, giving you the very best of the Belizean reef and jungle.
